Ok, before you dig in to the post, let’s get two things out of the way first.  1.Go read the authority on SOLID principles from the man himself, Uncle Bob Martin.  2nd.Go get the very cool Inspirational SOLID images from the guys over at Los Techies.

I also like that fact that most people don’t think about some of the more advanced software approaches that you can take with Silverlight.
